I know you're out there. I'll be doing a lot of local races during the next several months - it'd be cool to have a meet-up.<br><br>
Right now I'm likely to be at:<br><br><a href="http://trisportmedia.com/events.html" target="_blank">Lake Compounce 5/10k</a> - 5/25 - Bristol<br><a href="http://www.lhrr.com/" target="_blank">Litchfield Hills Road Race</a> - 6/8 - Litchfield<br><a href="http://trisportmedia.com/events.html" target="_blank">Lake Compounce Half-Marathon</a> - 6/22 - Bristol<br><a href="http://www.newhavenroadrace.org/" target="_blank">New Haven 20k</a> - 9/1 - New Haven<br><br>
Lots of other local 5 and 10ks - I'll post 'em as I decide. The first one I'm considering is the <a href="http://www.inghartfordmarathon.com/foundationnew/calendar/ohartford.htm" target="_blank">O'Hartford 5k</a> on 3/16 in Hartford. Anyone else out there?

If I'm running 2 of the 4 races you mentioned, might I be considered for a honorary CT resident position?<br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I didn't realize that you were from CT. For some reason I always that that you were on the west coast.<br><br>
I'll also likely make an appearance at the Hartford Marathon in some form - maybe the half.<br><br>

I am planning on running my first marathon in october (hartford), I've done a few halfs, and was wondering if there is anyone in my area who wants to do long runs together, that way I'm guilted into sticking with it. I live in Hartford, 8:30 pace (or so)

I live in East Granby, but could do a long run every once in a while in the Hartford area. I'm somewhat familiar with Hartford as I run there during my lunch hour.<br><br>

Howdy folks. I haven't been around much lately, but I'm still at it. Currently training to run Boston's Run to Remember HM on 5/25. Goal is to run sub 2hrs (current PR is 2:09)<br><br>
I'm using <i>Runner's World's</i> Intermediate 'Ultimate HM Training Program'.<br><br>
There is an Enfield Runner's Group, but their weekend runs haven't jived with my schedule yet.<br><br>
I'm looking to run early AM start between 6-7ish. Goal Pace is 8:50, but long runs will be low 9's-9:30 or so. I live in Tolland.<br><br>
Other than the Boston race, I don't have anything else on the calendar yet, but I'm not opposed to adding stuff in! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Cheers!
